The Computer Mind

The Computer Mind

The Computer Mind. Humans have designed and programmed computers to function in much the same way as the human mind.

The Computer Mind, Flow and Balance, Welcome Psychological Flexibility .WELCOME YOUR GENIUS MIND

  • We can think of external computer inputs such as the key-board, USB thumb drives and CDs as being like the external information we put into our minds, through sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste etc.
  • Inside the computer case or tower is the motherboard which contains the central processing unit (CPU). This is the computer mind which is much like our unconscious mind,. This is where our beliefs and behaviors run like computer programs, deep in the background somewhere. Our unconscious mind stores memories in time order, while some are deleted into the ‘trash’.
  • The computer mind screen and speakers display information and learning which is stored in the CPU,  just as in our deep unconscious mind.The Conscious Mind

The Computer Mind

Just as you are looking at your computer or device screen right now, your attention is focused upon what you are reading. If your speakers are playing music your attention may also be focused upon what you hear.

The human conscious mind is logical and analytical. It understands the concepts of time (past, present, and future) and it also understands reality.

Your computer or device has operating systems programs running in the background, which you are consciously unaware of and do not understand. Like most computer users you probably do not understand computer operating systems.

Much like a computer mind, our consciousness is most efficient when focused upon one task at a time, although unconscious programs are running somewhere in the background. We cannot see them and we cannot hear them either, although we may feel them as emotions. That is because the ‘language’ of our unconscious (just as computers have a programming language) is emotion.

We only become aware we may have a computer virus or trojan when the computer or device is not operating correctly.

We would only allow a properly qualified and experienced computer programmer to access our computer programs to fix the errors and software conflicts.

Likewise, we only become aware of our unconscious ‘viruses’ when we ‘feel’ something is wrong emotionally.

The Human Brain

The Subconscious Mind

The terms subconscious and unconscious are often confused, So let us clear it up right now. The subconscious mind is the state of daydreaming and deep relaxation. Put simply, we are sub-aware of it. The sub-conscious is adjacent to consciousness and provides accessible information, such as memories and recall.

The Unconscious Mind

The unconscious is deeper, much deeper than the subconscious mind. You have perhaps heard of Sigmund Freud, the Austrian father of psychoanalysis? He wrote about ‘ads unbewusste’ (the unconscious mind, as all that takes place outside conscious awareness). He was talking about the UN known to the conscious (surface) mind.

The Unconscious is UN everything conscious. It is not logical or analytical. It does not understand the concepts of time and reality.

That is the same part of our computer mind that sorts our emotions, memories, beliefs and behaviors,.

Our unconscious mind sometimes gets confused between what actually happened, and what we dreamed or imagined.

It can come to illogical conclusions about facts and reality. In some ways, these can be much like computer viruses.

Unfortunately, sometimes the unconscious mind does things, which may be a threat to our own survival (such as addiction, panic attacks, trauma, and depression) – these are in direct conflict with its own purpose.

Just like a computer programmer, Peter Zapfella uses Neuro (how we think) Linguistic (how we communicate) Programming (our patterns of behavior and emotion) NLP, the Emotional Alignment Technique (formerly therapy) and advanced hypnosis to identify the unconscious errors and anomalies, and re-align them with survival.

In some ways, this is like running a computer anti-virus.

As a result, he can assist us to delete faulty programs such as addiction, anxiety, trauma, and depression, so that our mind and our lives run more smoothly.

Glitches and Viruses

Everything runs quite smoothly and seamlessly until, like a computer with a virus, glitches start to occur. With your computer, you may realize this as you start to note flaws on your screen. In life, you may notice this in your behavior or internal feelings. Of course, just like one would with a computer, you begin to consciously try to figure out what the problem could be. Is the problem within you? You may notice it appears to have triggers – certain moments or situations, or perhaps somehow linked to certain people around you. You may notice you cannot control or stop feeling those feelings, even though you are conscious of them. Most people cannot consciously locate the root of the problem, no matter how much they analyze themselves.

This struggle occurs because we usually attempt to figure these issues out by using our conscious mind. The problems are not in the conscious mind, they are deeper. Perhaps we could run an anti-virus program or use the keyboard and mouse in a specific way to access the CPU, to locate the affected program and the virus. In that way, we can bring it up on to the screen before we can start the process of cleaning the virus out.

Functioning Smoothly

Based upon their responses to his questions, Peter Zapfella assists his clients to delete faulty computer mind programs and then install new functional programs, which improve their daily lives.

Even though the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious operate almost as different entities, you may already be able to appreciate how incredibly impressive and effective the whole computer mind really is.

The Phobia List

The Phobia List, Quit Phobia's

The Phobia List. Irrational Fears, Anxiety and Panic Attacks. Fear is a normal emotion within us all. It is related to the survival instinct. It alerts us to a threat, and prepares us for action – either ‘fight or flight’.

The fear reaction may be either:

  • Non-existent,
  • mild,
  • normal,
  • elevated

When a fear is said to be ‘irrational’ or illogical, absurd, nonsensical, or ridiculous – we call it a ‘phobia’. There are three types of phobias;

  • agoraphobia (such as large, open spaces where there are few ‘places to hide’),
  • social phobia (such as fear of other people, performance anxiety etc), and
  • specific phobias (such as spiders, snakes, dogs, water, insects, flying, heights, confined spaces etc).

Somewhere between 10 – 20 percent of people suffer from at least one significant phobia. It is the most common mental disorder among women and the second most common in men worldwide.

The feeling of fear may be accompanied by heart palpitations, ‘cold sweats’, clammy hands, ‘butterfly stomach’ sensations, dizziness, and an overwhelming need to ‘run away’ and ‘escape’. This is often, but not always accompanied by feelings of intense ‘worry’ or ‘anxiety’.

When confronted with the feared situation, the sufferer may even have a ‘panic attack’, the spontaneous onset of intense fear that makes them feel as if they might stop breathing and pass out, or even have a heart attack and die.

In the past phobias were treated with expensive, slow, often unsuccessful, and sometimes traumatic ‘systematic desensitization’ methods. Other methods of control included:

  • denial,
  • dissociation or
  • distraction.

Symptoms can be temporarily treated with medications such as the commonly prescribed benzodiazepines, which include Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam). But the inevitable side effects are the problem –  drowsiness and addiction. The risk of addiction will vary depending on the dose and drugs you are using. Remember no medication can be considered safe in all circumstances, and it is important to review your medications with your doctor from time-to-time. It is never a good idea to quit any medication without first consulting your doctor.

You need never suffer from the debilitating effects of a phobia (intense irrational fear) and that anxiety (elevated worry) again – there is a better way.

Peter Zapfella

Phobia, anxiety, and panic attacks respond quickly and effectively, without the risk of withdrawals or trauma using the Emotional Alignment Technique, which is a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) method. With more than 23 years of experience as a therapist, and has assisted thousands of people to escape their former fears and anxieties Peter Zapfella treats sufferers world-wide via Skype, FaceTime, Viber and Facebook Messenger.

ViberFacebook Messenger

Peter has had many successful sessions with clients in Europe, North America, Asia, and across Australia including the outback using Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services including Skype, FaceTime, Viber, Facebook Messenger, and others. Appointments are available almost  24/7 world-wide.

Alyson Willis

“The Skype session with me for my claustrophobia and panic attacks really worked. On Wednesday, I was kept latched to the operating table for well over an hour in total and didn’t panic once.” – Alyson Willis. United Kingdom.

Because of the time-zone differences, Peter is usually available for Skype clients 24/7. He also uses technology to send his clients files, including MP3’s through WeTransfer.

In an ironic twist the word Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is one of the longest words in the dictionary, is the name for the fear of long words. Read more interesting words, or find the name of your own phobia below.
